It's a powergame When escalation begins to crow Conflicts are solved with weapons War is like a show The smell of burning flesh Mankind's devoured by flames Combats on polluted soil Fireballs Power is a game – justice Causing havoc and chaos – killing All of us must pay the price – justice Senseless propaganda – killing Support through ignorance – death Every war based on lies
Loosing life control Burning desire Pushed in veins to get Down on one's knees Chemical substances reach the brain It seems ike a fantastic dream The result of physical addiction Is personality's destruction Isolated from society means Living behind the scenery The need for more turns out To be a nightmare This is the preach of this new world A life in freedom but A life in hell as well, too It's an escape from your world of lies Find the truth and die A life in hell is worth nothing Blinded by a fantasy world Stand up and let your dreams die Haunted by pain, searching for more To meet demand There's no escape to real world Are you ready for the march to hell To see the truth with a thousand eyes
Ratrace 03:59
No hope no glory for all of us False promises cross out way of trust Promises for stupid masses which Show them real salvation Wake up and understand the meaning Defiance is the only word they know Wealth is their only power These are the reasons for pain and sorrow They want They need They get all what they want Ratrace – green paper rules the brain Ratrace – it's a life without any compromise Don't live for the moment Nor for a certain period The only aim they have's That weak people have to die No scruple for them and No fear about the results They wanna lead a life in prosperity That's all they want
Loud screams are coming out From deep inside No one seems to near The screams of agony You are doomed to help Yourself out Isolated from a world Full of antipathy Despised from society Reason for insanity Can't hear can't see can't speak No feelings deep inside Can't hear can't see can't speak The pain bites soul and mind I'm insane and I Don't need any help I spend my life In a psychological cell I am cursed to hate The human race This fact is not A mental illness It's my fate I live my life in a real sick world I'm inspired by the voices inside You call it mania but it is an inspiration It is a shelter against human influences
Hate or be hated Hatred: you and me Hatred: the cure all Hatred: a feeling inside Hatred: no compromise Life on the fighting path Feelings without remorse Hatred: start of conflicts Hatred: no reason why Hatred: soaring intolerance Hatred: way to handle life Hatred: is being unleashed Hatred: no trust Hatred: aggression outburst Hatred: cry from inside
Bloodred Sky 03:38
Sky is beginning to turn red Armaggeddon's near Human race Is doomed to die Now all's clear Under a blood-red sky We all shall die A blood-red stream, is flooding the land Drown & die, mankind's future Has been written, all life is eradicated Earth is blown to pieces All is said and done Earth's remains are Floating in outer space Total self destruction A superior life form Will will be born To create a new existence Humanity has to be damned No mercy and forgiveness Believing in lies from stupid guys False prediction What reigns in our century It's just naviety Shall all we die??
The Pact 05:12
In a night in the woods of Saint-Jean D'Angely The king and the pope met to conspire against us We become rich in order to purchase the world And to have the right to humiliate clergy and kingdom We worship divine honours to a head of a goat Sacrifice to the epitome of evil It's we who give obscene kisses on the back parts Of our grand master, Jaques De Molay We do pacts with the bearded idol Have intercourse with female demons We sin against our father Against the son through hatred We are jesuits who failed Hate the roman catholic doctrine We were accursed of heresey We perished in flames of inquisition Spit blood upon the image of christ, deny god's Holy scriptures and the holy ghost's splendour Worshipping the demon in form of a goat and swearing The oath of allegiance for eternity Monstrous, infernal, dark Blasphemous, horrible, evil The monstrous idol saved Jaques De Molay From the flames of redemption The king and the pope were banned forever from heaven's Tribunal to the depths of a bottomless pit
The earth was destroyed by technology Life has lost identity Killing – destroying Machines' control the human mind The downfall of humanity Operation: mass destruction Killing machines – destroyer of life Killing machines – creator of death This desaster begun with the final march Against human life Killing – destroying The ashes of burnt souls were Spread in the wind Operation: mass destruction Killing machines – destroyer of life Killing machines – creator of death Smell of burnt flesh fills the air Hills made of bones cover the land
Soulcontrol 05:21
Evil works good just realizes Should I kill or should I be killed There's a pressure in my head Should I beat or should I be mugged Infiltration of souls Thoughts are under control Good/bad relationship Offence against yourself The devil has spoken in me No answers and a Complete standstill No chances to refuse Time has ripe to kill Influenced in the name of the devil Sin after sin Everything's wrong The way you've taken Has always been wrong Fight – kill – destroy No time to stay Just beware Under control I have to face hard decisions Should I take the right or left way A life full of eternal doubt Did I choose the right way now?
Chaos 03:53
Fighting for liberty to Combat death and insanity System is collapsing and This process can't be stopped All human minds have To adapt radical chances Limitless freedom is life in chaos Time to change Getting free Run away Taking off to new dimensions Conflicts can only be solved In systems without suppression Individuality is alienated Systematically Fight against this system is War against your inner self Winning this inner war is Necessary for life in chaos Tear apart the inner wall Fighting for liberty is an Achievment of mind anarchy Individuality can be reached With chaotic thoughts Winning this inner war is Life with free personality
